Former NFL GM Rips Aaron Rodgers Over Contract

A highly eventful Tuesday in the NFL world started with NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reporting that Aaron Rodgers signed a four-year, $200 million mega-contract to stay with the Green Bay Packers. Later in the day, the quarterback confirmed that he’s staying put in 2022. However, the four-time MVP disputed the reported details of his new deal.



“Hey everyone, just wanted to clear some things up,” Rodgers wrote. “YES I will be playing with the @packers next year, however, reports about me signing a contract are inaccurate, as are the supposed terms of the contract I ‘signed’. I’m very excited to be back.” Rodgers, who hasn’t had the smoothest relationship with the media these days, didn’t pinpoint any inaccuracies.





Perhaps he just wanted to control the narrative and break the story on his own terms. Or maybe he’s only making a paltry $198 million. The contract’s exact specifications remain unclear, but there are two things we know for sure. Aaron Rodgers is staying with the Packers, and he’s going to make a lot of money.



It’s also likely the deal, as initially reported by Rapoport and Pat McAfee, reduces his hit on Green Bay’s salary cap. After all, the Packers (also per Rapoport) opened up their wallets again to place the franchise tag on star wide receiver Davante Adams.
